From Rebecca Doulton in MadridThe unisex Piaget Altiplano watch set is the epitome of slim elegance and ideal proportions. Ever since 1957, when Piaget watches generated the world’s thinnest mechanical movement, called calibre 9P, with a thickness of only 2mm, Piaget has established a reputation for a watchmaker of lean horological machines.
The Altiplano collection premiered in 1988 and, since its beginning, hasn’t strayed from its destiny as a sleek, ultra-thin dress watch, even when looking at the sporty guise of a flyback chronograph, shattering world records for leanness over and over again.

This year, Piaget watches adds an additional touch of class to its Altiplano collection with the incorporation of slinky white and rose gold bracelets for both its men’s and girls’ versions. Having held that the watch at the SIHH salon this year, I can vouch for the beautiful suppleness of the polished gold necklace, which escapes from the round event and fastens to the wrist with an integrated grip for a smooth, cushioned fit.
Perfect for gifting, the satiny opaline dial of the Altiplano is a triumph of minimalism due to its pristine surface, thin baton indices and slender hands. Fitted using an abysmal Manufacture Piaget 534P mechanical automatic movement, the newest Piaget Altiplano watch with a golden bracelet comes in equally 34mm and 38mm, in white or rose gold, and also the chance of a diamond-set bezel.
Luxurious, pure and elegant, the newest Luxur Piaget Altiplano watch with a gold necklace is dressed for enduring success.
